Today’s generation faces more problems with hormonal imbalance because of their lifestyle routine and eating habits. Various causes can lead to hormonal imbalance, including health problems of the adrenal, gut, thyroid, and liver, or an unhealthy diet. Our body gives us various signals of hormonal imbalances, which can lead to various health problems such as anxiety, mood swings, depression, hair loss, weight gain, acne, energy loss, insomnia, fatigue, blood sugar imbalance, and digestion problems.
Experts say several natural ways can help you in balancing your hormones. So after discussing with some health experts, we have listed six early morning rituals that can help you balance hormones. The morning is the base of our day, and what we do in the morning will set up the whole tone for our day. So start your morning by following some healthy habits to enjoy your day with more energy.
Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic technique in which one has to swish one tbsp of oil, such as coconut oil, keep it in the mouth for 20 minutes, and then spit it out. There is not any direct scientific research that proves any direct link between oil pilling the hormonal imbalance. Still, some studies say that oil pulling daily helps boost gut health and positively impacts oral health, which can indirectly benefit hormonal balance. As per research, it has been found that poor oral health can lead to inflammation and hormonal imbalance.
Some people have also reported that oil pulling daily helps with more energy and reduces stress levels. But you should still not use this technique as a substitute for a medical problem. You should immediately contact your healthcare expert for better treatment if you have any symptoms.
Start your day with movement.
You should start your day with some light stretching as it will help to wake all of your body parts, make them energetic, and makes you feel fresh. Starting a day with physical exercises benefits digestion, the lymphatic system, and metabolism, which ultimately helps hormonal balance.
Exposure to Sun
One of the significant things you should first do after waking up is to get some sun exposure. Most people today first pick up their mobile phones after waking up, but this will not be good for your overall health. When we wake up, our stress hormones are already on a spike, and not getting sun exposure and directly getting blue lights on our eyes will boost the cortisol – Stress hormones in our body. You should wait at least 45 minutes before getting any blue light and go in the sun for at least 20 minutes as it will help maintain your circadian rhythm, which benefits Harmon balance.
Avoid Bed Tea/Coffee
Many people habitually drink bed tea or coffee to make them feel energetic. But this is the worst thing ever. These things will not do any good for you. So you should avoid these bed tea and coffee if you want to do something about your hormonal imbalances.
You should get your breakfast within 90 minutes after you wake up. Your breakfast should include a balanced protein diet essential for your day. A good breakfast helps reduce food cravings within meals, making you energetic. Also, it signals hunger Harmon to generate more energy for your body throughout your waking hours as hunger harmons are the ones that influence the sleep/wake cycle!
Grounding is as simple as walking barefoot on the ground. Doing grounding helps the daytime rhythm of the stress hormone cortisol to normalize, regulates metabolism, helps control blood sugar levels, helps with memory formulation, and helps reduce inflammation.
So these are the six early morning rituals you should add to your daily routine to cope with hormonal imbalance and enjoy a healthy and energetic life.
